WSRcg provides expert witness services for litigation involving large-scale system project and software failures. We have provided opinions or testimony in such matters in North America, Europe, Asia, and in courts at all levels including US Federal Courts, Superior Courts, and the Court of Federal Claims, and in arbitration and mediation. As pioneers in the areas of systems development methodology, systems testing and acceptance, and systems contracts, WSRcg experts use their particularly rich experience and diverse expertise to quickly uncover the root causes of why a system and/or project has failed in terms of quality, cost, schedule, functionality and performance.
WSRcg has learned over the past 30 years in over 100 IT, computer, software failure and software project failure matters in North America, Asia, and Europe, that the same underlying causes are important claims in the pleadings/complaints prepared by both parties! These underlying attributes weigh in very heavily as potential root causes in virtually all such failures (and successes).
While in most cases, multiple parties tend contribute to a failure, courts typically hold one party more responsible than the others, and often the determination of liability can be counter-intuitive. To help the court correctly attribute the primary blame for a software or software project failure, it is important to carefully isolate and identify the root cause of failure, which itself depends on the degree to which each of the eleven forces and related decisions played a role in shaping the events of a project.
WSRcg addresses the risks known, or should have been known before, during and after project Go-Live including:
